Armidale High School Black Creek BushCare Group- NSW
The Armidale High School Black Creek BushCare Goup (BC2) was formed and officially registered as a member group of Southern New England Landcare Ltd (SNEL) in 2016. Working collaboratively with SNEL schools coordinator Sara Schmude, the group’s first project was to conduct baseline biodiversity surveys to identify weed and native vegetation within the school grounds. Since then the group has undertaken numerous Bushcare activities, including working with the local community to revegetate local native remnant vegetation site “Manna Gums”. Through bush plantings on the school grounds, group members and fellow students have seen the benefits to the local fauna first-hand, auditing the school’s biodiversity before and after plantings.
